TWR70bSpecial Silent Winter Retreat

In addition, information about Ligmincha Institute’s special silent Winter Retreat on Dec. 27, 2013–Jan. 1, 2014, is available in Spanish. This dzogchen practice retreat with Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is the first silent retreat to be held at Serenity Ridge.

Dzogchen, known as the “great perfection,” is considered the highest teaching in Tibetan Buddhism. Its fundamental tenet is that reality, including the individual, is already complete and perfect, that nothing needs to be transformed (as in tantra) or renounced (as in sutra) but only recognized for what it truly is.

During the retreat, all time with Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will be spent in practice and meditation as Rinpoche will present and guide a selection of dzogchen practices from the ancient Bón Buddhist texts. There will be time for questions and answers. The retreat is open to all. Learn more at the links below.
